The grocery chain announced it is eliminating single-use plastic bags at all its North Carolina stores.
The change goes into effect on July 1.
Paper grocery bags will continue to be available for 5 cents a bag.
Wegmans’ goal is to shift customers to reusable bags.
The money collected from the paper bag charge will be donated to each store’s local food bank.
